Volume 76: Middlegame Transition Guide: How GMs Transition From Opening to Middlegame – GM Damian Lemos

This video series presents the guide for transition to the middlegame, how GMs plan the passage from the opening to the middlegame, paying particular attention to how the choice of opening decides the plans on how to follow on to the middlegame and the endgame. During the middlegame, the player can lose the advantage they obtained in the opening if they do not know how to correctly enact their plan; just as it happens to experts in endgames. If you do not obtain an advantageous position in the middlegame, it will be very difficult to achieve victory in the endgame.

Volume 77: Attack Like a Super GM – GM Damian Lemos

Many players know how to attack, but lack the ability to coordinate material and create decisive threats towards a particular objective. It is important to not only know how to evaluate a position and determine whether you can attack, but also the most effective way to transfer your forces into attack. Not doing this correctly could cost the player the game.

Volume 78: Counterattack Like a Super GM – GM Damian Lemos

Counterattacking, a powerful weapons in our repertoire, is one of the important facets of the game that we see in these videos. Often we need to defend and wait for our chance to counterattack; this tends to be very effective as our opponent goes from attacking to having to defend themselves which they don’t like to do. Counterattacking is often more effective against an opponent’s poor defense when they are unable to adapt to the new situation.

Volume 79: Super GM Tactics – GM Damian Lemos

Tactics often complement a prepared strategy and you will also learn how to punish an opponent for ignoring certain norms of the game, such as development, gaining material in exchange for a loss in tempo and you will see the importance of initiative and prioritizing development over material.

Volume 80: Killer Combinations – GM Damian Lemos

GM Damian Lemos focuses teaching you certain combination tactics that bring about forced mate or gaining material by meticulously scrutinizing 4 Super GM games in order to explain how Grandmasters think. There are a lot of tactical themes that should be known and certain typical combinations that all players should know. There are simple combinations with few moves to gain material in the short term and other more complex and difficult ones that require longer precise calculation and can bring about mate or gain material but not immediately.

Overpriced, Underusable Review by lumpus
Rating
I am not a strong player -- peak rating 1925, currently around 1800. There was very little on these videos I didn't already know, tactical points were very rudimentary, and the pace very, very slow. I would recommend this series, perhaps, for 1200-1500 or thereabouts.

Though just started with the lessons it gives me (rated approx. 1750) structured instruction. To the point, not too fast and not too slow tempo. Almost eyery question that pops up in me, is answered directly furtheron in de explanation.
Download and starting up went smoothly. Minus: for me as Dutchman the English pronounciation is sometimes a bit hard to follow. (Posted on April 15, 2016)

Really solid Review by dashriprock
Rating
Like the message from Kung Fu Panda - "There is no secret ingredient". Getting better at chess requires hard work and dedication, which can only be fueled by a crazy love for the game. That said, as a +55 computer guy with a USCF rating that floats around 1950, I've been looking for material that can get me over the hump into Expert. I've only watched the first dvd so far - "GM Attacks for Club Players", but I already feel like I am playing more strongly. GM Lemos is straightforward and easy to understand, once you get that the 'zhee file' is the g-file. His selection of material is very good, I hadn't seen the Lasker-Bauer game (classic double bishop sac) in over 10 years, and I thought I knew what was going on, but I've learned quite a bit more from the video. Considering all the great free videos on ICC and elsewhere, should you buy it? At the sale price - yes! (Posted on April 10, 2016)

Very impressed Review by paulanderton

I have returned to chess after many years. I have never had a lesson, just played at school. I am determined to develop my skills and already after the first 2 chapters of dvd 1 I have learnt, recognised several strategies that will improve my play.
A must! (Posted on April 10, 2016)
